    Questions aren't news. Moving to TF Toy Discussion.

    And around here, there was an initial wave that was quickly scooped up. I got the last Ratchet at a TRU, then nothing for three weeks. Then the store restocked with more and I snagged Arcee. Just be vigilant, watch your local sightings thread, and good luck!

    I tend to watch the main page and didn't see the usual "TRU Arcee and Ratchet spotted at retail thread." Unless I missed it.

    Still no Arcee. Did see a couple of Ratchet but I don't want him.

    I've spotted a restocking of the assortment three times at the TRU in my town. Only seen one Arcee on the pegs, otherwise it's always been two or three Ratchets.

    I hear you. And you're not the only one having trouble finding them on the pegs.

    Just be thankful they're out in your country. Different story up here.

    Then you missed them. The case assortment is 4 of each.

    I've seen the Ratchets but the Toys-R-Us stores that I have been to have been cleaned out of the Arcee figures. You've have better luck with lottery scratch off tickets than you do of finding a Toys-R-Us that the scalpers haven't hit for Arcee.

    I just saw a bunch at my local Toyrus. I grabbed three Arcee. One for myself and two for board member here.

    So far 3 stores have had the Arcee's in the overhead storage.


    Probably Scalpers but it could be employees.

    I found one today at the Times Square TRU. It seems that the scalpers are going after Arcee more than Ratchet.

    My TrU's in Vegas aren't even buying into Animated toys--they haven't restocked in any form at three locations for months. Good news there is, it means I haven't missed any. Problem is, if they wait any longer, they may not get any as the time might pass them up. I certainly hope I don't miss out on this one--I outright refuse to pay scalper prices. (I never did get Alt Nemesis Prime, even though I really wanted one--just a little worried this might turn out the same...)

    It's common toy-collector knowledge that toys of females in generally "boys" lines are rare, and more often than not, shortpacked.

    Scalpers have ALWAYS jumped at toys of female characters.
